Seems all that time Owen Wilson spent recuperating with buddy Woody Harrelson is having a big effect. The 39-year-old actor went through a rough time last summer after being hospitalized for a suicide attempt. Several months later, he resurfaced with Harrelson in Peru, roughing it and enjoying some time helping at an orphanage and chilling at an eco-friendly spiritual center called the Hanaq Pacha Retreat Center.
Now, In Touch is reporting that Wilson is making plans to move to the same sustainable, solar-powered community in Hawaii as enjoyed by Woody. From the article,
Owen Wilson is saying “aloha” to island living. When the 39-year-old actor spent a week visiting good pal Woody Harrelson in Maui starting on August 7, he fell in love with the tropical paradise — and the environmentally friendly lifestyle. Woody lives in a completely solar-powered, sustainable community featuring organic farming. “It’s 100 percent green living,” says an insider. “Owen likes it so much that he made an offer on a home there.” Owen’s 2004 film, The Big Bounce, was set in Hawaii.
How do you like that? I’m not necessarily one for Ecovillages, but Hawaii would be a great place to try one out! It’s great to see Owen moving beyond the troubles that plagued him last year and embracing a green, sustainable lifestyle. Good luck!
